I had room n°14 at the first floor, next to the reception. I payed 25 euro/night. The room has beds for 3 persons. I stayed there for more then one week, because my budget didn't alowed a higher room rate and most of other places were booked completely when I arrived at Porto (mids august). Every morning, starting even at 06:15 to 06:30, there was a VERY loud and enthousiast conference going on in the reception at the change of reception personel. The front door was opened permanently for the rest of the day at that time, so the noise of the street (bus station around the corner, many cars, dogs, many seagull's) comes next to your pillow. Some heavy footed persons kept on passing the corridor on a wooden floor, which is in direct contact with the one under your bed. It is as everything happens in your room, just next to your bed. Sleeping gets impossible under these conditions and after some days the sleep deprivation takes his toll. Even other tourists I encountered on terraces in town told me I was looking tired. Needeless to say that after some days I was getting exhausted and had to look for other lodging, at a 50% higher rate, to be sure of a quiet room.
Other remarks: the water from tap was yellowish. There is no airco, no fridge. The female staff member at the reception does not speak or understand any other language. The man understands some foreign words.
